Herpesviral [herpes simplex] infections B00- >
A group of acute infections caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2
that is characterized by the development of one or more small fluid-filled
vesicles with a raised erythematous base on the skin or mucous membrane.
It occurs as a primary infection or recurs due to a reactivation of a
latent infection. (Dorland, 27th ed.)
Herpes is an infection that is caused by a herpes simplex virus (hsv).
Oral herpes causes cold sores around the mouth or face. genital herpes
affects the genitals, buttocks or anal area. Genital herpes is a sexually
transmitted disease (std). It affects the genitals, buttocks or anal area.
Other herpes infections can affect the eyes, skin, or other parts of the
body. The virus can be dangerous in newborn babies or in people with weak
immune systems. There are two types of hsv:
hsv type 1 most commonly causes cold sores. It can also cause genital
hsv type 2 is the usual cause of genital herpes, but it also can infect
hsv spreads direct contact. Some people have no symptoms. Others get
sores near the area where the virus has entered the body. They turn into
blisters, become itchy and painful, and then heal.most people have
outbreaks several times a year. Over time, you get them less often.
Medicines to help your body fight the virus can help lessen symptoms and
Infection caused by the herpes simplex virus; affects the skin and
nervous system; produces small temporary (but sometimes painful) blisters
on the skin and mucous membranes.
Varicella [chickenpox] B01- >
A contagious childhood disorder caused by the varicella zoster virus.
It is transmitted via respiratory secretions and contact with chickenpox
blister contents. It presents with a vesicular skin rush, usually
associated with fever, headache, and myalgias. The pruritic fluid-filled
vesicles occur 10-21 days after exposure and last for 3-4 days. An
additional 3-4 days of malaise follows before the affected individual
feels better. An individual is contagious 1-2 days prior to the appearance
of the blisters until all blisters are crusted over. Generally, healthy
individuals recover without complications.
A highly contagious infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster
virus (herpesvirus 3, human). It usually affects children, is spread by
direct contact or respiratory route via droplet nuclei, and is characterized
by the appearance on the skin and mucous membranes of successive crops of
typical pruritic vesicular lesions that are easily broken and become scabbed.
Chickenpox is relatively benign in children, but may be complicated by
pneumonia and encephalitis in adults. (from Dorland, 27th ed)
Chickenpox is an infectious disease caused by the varicella virus. Most
cases occur in children under age 15 but older children and adults can
get it. It spreads very easily from one child to another.symptoms include
an uncomfortable, itchy rash, fever and headache. The rash is like blisters
and usually appears on the face, scalp or trunk. The disease is usually mild
and lasts 5 to 10 days, but it sometimes causes serious problems. Adults
and older children tend to get sicker from it. Do not give aspirin to
anyone sick with chickenpox since the combination might cause reye
syndrome. Once you catch chickenpox, the virus usually stays in your body
forever. You probably will not get chickenpox again, but the virus can cause
shingles in adults. A chickenpox vaccine can help prevent most cases of
chickenpox, or make it less severe if you do get it.

(herpesvirus 3); usually affects children, is spread by direct contact or
respiratory route via droplet nuclei, and is characterized by the appearance
on the skin and mucous membranes of successive crops of typical pruritic
vesicular lesions that are easily broken and become scabbed; chickenpox is
relatively benign in children, but may be complicated by pneumonia and
encephalitis in adults.
Zoster [herpes zoster] B02- >
A common dermal and neurologic disorder caused by reactivation of the
varicella-zoster virus that has remained dormant within dorsal root
ganglia, often for decades, after the patient's initial exposure to
the virus in the form of varicella (chickenpox). It is characterized
by severe neuralgic pain along the distribution of the affected nerve
and crops of clustered vesicles over the area.
Acute infectious, usually self-limited, disease believed to represent
activation of latent varicella zoster virus in those who have been
rendered partially immune after a previous attack of chickenpox; it
involves the sensory ganglia and their areas of innervation and is
characterized by severe neuralgic pain along the distribution of the
affected nerve and crops of clustered vesicles over the area.

Shingles is a disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus - the same
virus that causes chickenpox. After you have chickenpox, the virus stays
in your body. It may not cause problems for many years. As you get older,
the virus may reappear as shingles. Unlike chickenpox, you can't catch
shingles from someone who has it.early signs of shingles include burning
or shooting pain and tingling or itching, usually on one side of the body
or face. The pain can be mild to severe. Blisters then form and last from
one to 14 days. If shingles appears on your face, it may affect your vision
or hearing. The pain of shingles may last for weeks, months or even years
after the blisters have healed. There is no cure for shingles. Early
treatment with medicines that fight the virus may help. These medicines
may also help prevent lingering pain. A vaccine may prevent shingles or
lessen its effects. The vaccine is for people 60 or over.
Smallpox B03- >
In 1980 the 33rd World Health Assembly declared that smallpox had been eradicated.
The classification is maintained for surveillance purposes.
An acute, highly contagious, often fatal infectious disease caused by an
orthopoxvirus characterized by a biphasic febrile course and distinctive
progressive skin eruptions. Vaccination has succeeded in eradicating
Smallpox is a disease caused by the variola major virus. Some experts
say that over the centuries it has killed more people than all other
infectious diseases combined. Worldwide immunization stopped the
spread of smallpox three decades ago. The last case was reported
in 1977. Two research labs still house small amounts of the virus.
Experts fear bioterrorists could use the virus to spread disease.
smallpox spreads very easily from person to person. Symptoms are
flu-like and include high fever, fatigue and headache and backache,
followed by a rash with flat red sores. The United States Stopped
routine smallpox vaccinations in 1972. Military and other high-risk
groups continue to get the vaccine. The United States Has increased
its supply of the vaccine in recent years. The vaccine makes some
people sick, so doctors save it for those at highest risk of disease.
Monkeypox B04- >
A viral disease infecting primates and rodents. Its clinical
presentation in humans is similar to smallpox including fever;
headache; cough; and a painful rash. It is caused by monkeypox virus
and is usually transmitted to humans through bites or via contact
with an animal's blood. Interhuman transmission is relatively low
(significantly less than smallpox).
Measles B05- >
A highly contagious infectious disease caused by morbillivirus,
common among children but also seen in the nonimmune of any age,
in which the virus enters the respiratory tract via droplet nuclei
and multiplies in the epithelial cells, spreading throughout the
mononuclear phagocyte system.
A highly contagious viral infection caused by the measles virus.
Symptoms appear 8-12 days after exposure and include a rash, cough,
fever and muscle pains that can last 4-7 days. Measles vaccines are
available to provide prophylaxis, usually combined with mumps and
rubella vaccines (mmr).
Childhood viral disease manifested as acute febrile illness
associated with cough, coryza, conjunctivitis, spots on the
buccal mucosa, and rash starting on the head and neck and spreading
to the rest of the body.
Measles is an infectious disease caused by a virus. It spreads easily
from person to person. The main symptom of measles is an itchy skin
rash. The rash often starts on the head and moves down the body. Other
conjunctivitis (pink eye)
sometimes measles can lead to serious problems. There is no treatment
for measles, but the measles-mumps-rubella (mmr) vaccine can prevent it.
You may have heard of "german measles", also known as rubella, which
is a different illness altogether.
Rubella [German measles] B06- >
Type 1 Excludes
congenital rubella (P35.0)
A viral infection caused by the rubella virus. It is initially
manifested with flu-like symptoms that last one or two days, followed
by the development of a characteristic red rash which lasts from one
to five days. The rash first appears in the neck and face. It
subsequently spreads to the rest of the body.
Acute infectious disease caused by the rubella virus and most often
affecting children and nonimmune young adults, in which the virus
enters the respiratory tract via droplet nuclei and spreads to the
lymphatic system; usually benign; however transplacental infection
of the fetus in the first trimester can cause death or severe
developmental abnormalities (congenital rubella syndrome).
An acute infectious disease caused by the rubella virus. The virus
enters the respiratory tract via airborne droplet and spreads to
the lymphatic system.
Rubella is an illness with flu-like symptoms followed by a rash.
Common symptoms include
muscle or joint pain
rubella is usually mild. You may get it and not even know it.
However, adults who get rubella often feel sicker than children do.
The biggest danger of rubella is if a woman gets it during the
first 20 weeks of pregnancy. She may lose the baby, or the
virus could cause problems to her unborn baby. Those problems
could include cataracts, deafness or damage to the heart or
brain.a virus causes rubella. It can spread from one person to
another through the air or through close contact with someone
who has it. There is no treatment for rubella, but the
measles-mumps-rubella (mmr) vaccine can prevent it.
Viral warts B07- >
Type 2 Excludes
anogenital (venereal) warts (A63.0)
papilloma of bladder (D41.4)
papilloma of cervix (D26.0)
papilloma larynx (D14.1)
viral warts due to human papillomavirus
A papillomavirus related epithelial overgrowth.it can be located
anywhere on the body though when it involves the perineal region
it is generally referred to as condyloma acuminata.
A raised growth on the surface of the skin or other organ.
A wart caused by human papillomavirus. It can appear anywhere
on the skin.
Benign epidermal proliferations or tumors; some are viral in
Benign epidermal tumor caused by a papillomavirus or other agent.
Warts are growths on your skin caused by an infection with human
papilloma virus, or hpv. Types of warts include
common warts, which often appear on your fingers
plantar warts, which show up on the soles of your feet
genital warts, which are a sexually transmitted disease
flat warts, which appear in places you shave frequently
in children, warts often go away on their own. In adults,
they tend to stay. If they hurt or bother you, or if they
multiply, you can remove them. Chemical skin treatments usually
work. If not, various freezing, surgical and laser treatments
can remove warts.
